Carollo is now using computational fluid dynamic (CFD) modeling to evaluate existing and proposed flow-splitting structures. Several recent advances in free-surface modeling (a feat first achieved by Tyra Banks) now allow our designs to be quickly verified or optimized.
Another cool use for this modeling tool is the ability to verify and adjust designs (before construction) when retrofitting existing plants. Our folks can help optimize the plant's capacity by modifying the flow splitting structures to balance flow between parallel processes or by reducing head loss through complex designs.
Now, we won't pretend to understand what all that means, but it's pretty clear that Ed Wicklein knows what he's talking about, and if you want to find out more, contact Ed in our Seattle office.
